Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The creation of instances is very good, as is their interface which is not complex and is easy to use. With the dashboard it is easy to create a new instance and add your favorite things. You can add Debian, Ubuntu, or CentOS, or any flavor of operating system. You can select the RAM for your instance as well.""The fact that you can get a person on the phone has just been fantastic.""It has helped to minimize the risk and scale services at large in virtually no time.""Service availability is the most valuable feature. It gives every user 100 percent uptime.""The most valuable feature is that they are flexible and easy to get ahold of if I need something.""When I started using Linode, I found its functionality easy to navigate, user-friendly and responsive to my needs. It provides clear reminders about services I'm not using, like DNS zones, which I appreciate.""We can scale up and down as we require.""Because of the way that their pricing model is set up, I can scale up or down the size of a customer's server very easily. It makes life very easy for me when they run out of space, need more speed or RAM, etc. I can very easily pay the difference and reboot the machine, and now I have the upgrade that I wanted. That just makes it extremely simple."

"The initial setup is easy.""The most valuable feature of VMware Tanzu Mission Control is the management functionality of the cluster life cycle. Additionally, the solution integrates well with other vendors, such as Velero for backups and Sonobuoy for compliance. Additionally, it works well in multi-cluster environments.""VMware Tanzu Mission Control has many valuable features, such as ease of use and customization.""I have multiple Kubernetes environments within my environment. TMC gives me a single pane view, which is good for managing everything.""The most important thing about the solution is its flexibility.""It definitely gives the end customer a good overview and perspective of running applications in terms of overall workload footprint. TMC provides a very detailed description of your cloud-native application in the form of graphical visualization.""A feature we find valuable is that other products can also be integrated with Mission Control. This means that we can see the status of specific clusters, as well as view the monitoring application logs all from one point.""The multi-tenancy with the VCD is great."

More VMware Tanzu Mission Control Pros →

"It would be helpful if they offered a service where they handle the Linux security.""I don't know how all of their services work, but my understanding is that they're not offering the entry-level machine for someone who just wants to own their own web page.""I would like Linode (without cluttering things) to provide some type of DevOps workflow where people are configuring their pipelines from running their tests and deploying to their test server. Once approved by clicking a button, it just gets deployed to production. I would like something like Azure DevOps, which we use for large applications, and would be something nice to have in Linode.""It's not really an issue with Linode itself but upgrading Linux major versions can be challenging. It would be be fantastic if Linode developed a way to ease transitioning to a major new Linux upgrade.""There is room for improvement regarding customer support.""Everything is up-to-date for a small business. But for big business, they need to improve certain things. For example, there should be better security.""Our primary concern is always the latency.""When it comes to marketing and exposure, Linode needs improvement because I just randomly found them by looking for Linux solutions."

More Linode Cons →

"The infrastructure is quite challenging.""Tanzu provides better manageability as compared to OCP, but when it comes to tagging it with other products, it's a bit rigid. If I have to bring in any new product or something out of the box from a different vendor, working with Tanzu becomes a little difficult. For example, if I want to use the F5 services, I have to add one more layer of Avi, but I don't want to do that. If I have a list of the products that I want to use, such as for firewall services, with Tanzu, I will have to go through another layer, which creates complexity.""Having a unified dashboard to manage all infrastructure, whether it involves additional IT infrastructure or modern apps, would be highly advantageous""The solution could improve by having better integration with other solutions such as HPE.""LYNX is a managed cluster solution that takes care of specific details within a cluster, such as sequences or services. I haven't seen this feature in Tanzu Mission Control.""The disaster recovery feature could be improved to provide better tracking of issues. I would also like to see the introduction of a dashboard view, for even further integration of all the areas that Mission Control looks at.""This product doesn't have a GUI. In order to use it properly, I need to connect it to a new GUI or build a GUI to manage it — it's pretty difficult.""Another area of improvement is pricing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I pay just over £20 per month and have done so ever since I started eight years ago, which to me is good value."
  • "The pricing model is very simple. I like the simplicity of it, starting at $5, then doubling as it goes up from there. That is a brilliant idea, and it is not complex at all. It is about as dead simple as you can imagine. So, if you want to double what you have, then you double your price, pay the money, and reboot. It is done. It's that simple. You can't beat that."
  • "One key difference is that pricing is very hard to come by and to understand with all the bigger companies. Their pricing models are so weird and it's hard to figure out exactly how much I am going to pay for this kind of service. Everything is piecemeal. With Linode, it's simple and straightforward. You know exactly what you will have to pay at the end of the day."
  • "Compared to other service providers, like AWS and Google, the cost of services are much less and more affordable. We are saving about 90 percent by going with Linode versus other cloud providers."
  • "The pricing model is very simple. If you have very small applications, you can use the plan which costs $5 per month. That gives you 50 GB of memory and almost 1 GB of RAM. If you need more than you have to select the next plan which is $10 per month, which has about 70 GB of data and 2 GB of RAM."
  • "The value for the price is really good."
  • "Pricing is very good and flexible, according to the resources required."
  • "Being that they are small, their prices are slightly higher than the large providers like Amazon if you compare raw computing power."

  • "There are different licenses available. You have to upgrade your license if you want to scale the solution more."
  • "I would recommend that businesses look into the full price for their requirements. The price is high, but there are some open-source add-ons that can be used for customization while keeping costs down, although these might not be suitable for everyone."
  • "VMware Tanzu Mission Control is cheaper than Red Hat OpenShift."
  • "Its pricing is very competitive. We get around 70% or 75%, sometimes even 80%, discount on the product. I would rate it a four out of five in terms of pricing."
  • "The solution is only for large or medium size enterprises because it is expensive."
  • "The product is not expensive, but it is not cheap."
  • "It is not the most expensive option, and I believe the capabilities align well with the value it provides."
  • "Since we were at a large data center, the price might not have been a concern for us."

    What is VMware Tanzu Mission Control?

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control is a platform that enables you to manage modern applications by providing a single control point for IT teams to more easily handle Kubernetes and run modern containerized applications across multiple clusters and clouds. Because the solution is an API-driven service, it allows you to manage all of your clusters via its API, the web-based console, or the CLI. The VMware Tanzu Mission Control console gives you the ability to view Kubernetes resources in two ways - either by cluster groups to provide an infrastructure view, or by workspaces to provide an application view.

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control Provides:

    • Control for operators
    • Consistency for DevOps
    • Flexibility for developers

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control Features

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control has several valuable features, including:

    • Cluster lifecycle management: VMware Tanzu Mission Control gives you the flexibility needed to create or delete clusters, or upgrade or resize them by simply connecting to your own cloud provider account.

    • Cluster diagnostics and observability: With a comprehensive console, VMware Tanzu Mission Control makes it possible for you to monitor your clusters’ health and resource usage. The console allows you to see cluster details, such as nodes, workloads, and namespaces.

    • Cluster inspections: You can easily ensure consistency of clusters by running preconfigured inspections.

    • Data protection: With VMware Tanzu Mission Control, data resources in your clusters can be backed up and restored to ensure data protection.

    • Access control: VMware Tanzu Mission Control provides federated identity management and allows you to apply role-based access control on a granular level to meet your security requirements.

    • Policy management: You can create customized policies to manage your clusters, workloads, and namespaces, alleviating the need to manage your Kubernetes resources and its apps manually.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by VMware Tanzu Mission Control

    users who are currently using the solution.

    PeerSpot user Abbasi P., who is a Vice President Derivatives Ops IT at a financial services firm, mentions what he finds to be most useful about the product, stating, “Tanzu Mission Control has quite a set of rich features when compared to OpenShift. I like the dashboard for monitoring the CI/CD pipeline, the entire process of releasing it into the cloud, and deploying it to the cloud.

    Aurelio R., who is an IT Specialist at a tech services company, explains why he thinks the solution is valuable. “The most important feature of Tanzu Mission Control is its integration with the other products, especially with ESX and vSAN. This is a strong part of Tanzu Mission Control. In other solutions, such as OpenShift or Kubernetes, you can find similar features, but they don't have similar integration. With Tanzu Mission Control, you get a total solution with only one provider. You have the integration with the infrastructure, virtualization of networking, and virtualization of storage. You have a natural integration, and you don't have the problem of integrating it with different products or providers. Sometimes, different companies have good integration, but it is not always guaranteed. For example, many years ago, Cisco and VMware were good partners in networking, but when VMware started to sell ESX, the relationship was broken. This is the problem that you can face when you are using solutions from two different companies."

    A Cloud Architect at a computer software company says, “The multi-tenancy with the VCD is great.
